The Project named Speech-Bee is a portable communication device designed for the speech-impaired. It is basically a text-to-speech converter with which they can make phone calls too. It pronounces the desired text typed into it as well as displays it. There are two language modes: English and an Indian language (Malayalam). The pitch, tone, speed and volume of the speech can be varied so that the user can express his emotions. Male and female voices are included. Voice calls can be made using three methods: through GPRS, pairing with mobile phone via Bluetooth or through telephone land-line. The receiving section can hear the text typed by the user and the user can hear the voice of the other person through the earphone. The device can be powered up using rechargeable batteries or via adapter.
